I think it's along those lines. Also people don't descend down to the bars usually before 10pm especially those in their 20's. This is effectively closing night clubs and dive bars. Other places have done it by saying bars that don't serve food have to close. That would have been real ineffective in Ohio since basically all bars seem to serve food.Maybe the line of thinking is that bars being open longer results in more people getting drunk, and that drunk people are more prone to violating social distancing guidelines?
Genuinely have no idea on the rationale, though.
People might say that it will push young people to have parties more which it probably will. The number of parties and number of people invited to those parties will decrease over time. It's a big difference between having people over night after night in college and living in the mess it creates. People hopefully will tighten their circles because parties just create issues from everyone being drunk. Those issues are there for the person who throws the party to fix in the morning unlikely going to bar hopping night after night. All of this is said from personal experience, you just tired of being the one who throw the party. It just becomes easier to invite a few friends and just hang out.
